Romantic escapes to fall in love with

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, what better way to mark the month of love than with a romantic getaway with a difference. Whether you’re looking to pull out all the stops and treat the love of your life to the ultimate getaway, or simply enjoy a much-deserved retreat, here’s a few ideas to help you plan an unforgettable escape.

Tucked away in Morocco's High Atlas Mountains, Kasbah Tamadot is the perfect place for loved ones to get away from it all. Lose yourselves exploring the hotel’s beautiful gardens and courtyards, filled with the sweet scent of Moroccan rose.

Treat yourselves to a luxurious stay in a Berber Tent with a private deck and your own hot tub, it’s the perfect spot to cosy up after a day trekking in the mountains. For the ultimate date night enjoy dinner on the roof under the stars, followed by a classic film in the open-air cinema – with plenty of bubbles and popcorn of course!

Fall in love with Kenya’s wilderness at Mahali Mzuri, meaning ‘beautiful place’ in Swahili, it’s a truly unique setting within the exclusive Olare Motorogi Conservancy. Make unforgettable memories and share magical moments on twice-daily game drives packed with jaw-dropping animal sightings, before heading back to your luxurious tent to enjoy a romantic turn down with rose petals, a bubble bath and sparkling wine. As dusk falls, it’s time to behold another breath-taking sight with a private bush dinner under the Kenyan sky, lit only by lanterns and the moonlight.

Take your romance to new heights and head to the Swiss Alps for an unforgettable getaway at The Lodge. With Stunning mountain views and fresh alpine air, two hot tubs and Toblerone turndown treats, it’s a blissfully romantic spot in summer or winter. Couples’ looking to swap hearts and flowers for snow this winter can hit the slopes and enjoy all the luxuries of The Lodge without hiring the whole chalet during our ‘Hotel Weeks'.

In the summer months, why not seek out the numerous hiking trails on offer with a specially prepared picnic on the mountain side? With tailored menus and fine wines, the food is guaranteed to be one of the highlights of your stay, while a relaxing spa treatment from our resident beauty therapist is the final touch to your romantic getaway.

Make a date with the big five at Ulusaba in South Africa and experience a safari adventure to remember. Get to the heart of the action with spectacular game viewing in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, led by our expert guides. Back at the two lodges (Rock Lodge and Safari Lodge) there’s plenty of time for relaxation - so finding some time alone together won’t be a problem! Enjoy a couple’s treatment in the Aroma Boma spa followed by a lovers’ picnic, or for an evening of out-of-this-world romance, how about a private meal for two as you gaze up at the stars at the Bush Observatory.

If you’re more into wining and dining then look no further than Mont Rochelle. Situated in the picturesque corner of Franschhoek, known as the gourmet food capital of South Africa, our vineyard hotel features some of the best views of the valley and fantastic wines to match! There’s plenty of culinary experiences that await you, from bubbles on arrival, to daily wine tastings and decadent picnics within the 100-acre estate, it’s the ideal spot for a lover’s retreat.

As one of the world's most secluded and romantic spots in the British Virgin Islands Necker Island is about as wow as it gets for those looking to impress a loved one. Our 'Celebration Weeks' are the perfect opportunity for couples to book an individual room and create memories to last a lifetime, from a private sunset cruise to dinner on the roof terrace overlooking the glittering Caribbean Sea.
